Ham and Cheese Waffle

If you are like my family (which is highly unlikely) you have a spiral ham for New Years.  I personally love ham (another reason I couldn’t be a vegetarian).  It occurred to me that I’ve never made a savory ham and cheese waffle, though I’ve done bacon…so why not do ham too.  (but not spam).

Ingredients:  (for one person)

1 cup shredded ham (that is about what I took anyways)

½ cup cheese (I chose cheddar but there are many options here)

½ cup flour

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

1 tablespoon oil

½-1 cup milk or water depending on what you like

Spices I added: cinnamon


  1. Mix wet ingredients together then stir in oil.
  2. Add in dry ingredients and mix well adding more water/milk if necessary.
  3. Last add the ham and cheese.
  4. Add to waffle maker or cook on griddle.

I know that probably sounds pretty ham+cinnamon but in my house we use a ham glaze which is sweet and paired with savory ham is actually quite good.  I do enjoy savory waffles personally.

After having breakfast with Shannon last week, I thought about a ham and pineapple (ie:Hawaiian combination) that will be coming to you guys shortly.

Question for you:

  1. 1.       What is your favorite pancake combination?
  2. 2.       What do you have for New Year’s Dinner?

  1. I’m not personally a ham person but I love that you’ve been making savory waffles. I think I need to start mixing up the standard pancake recipes and try something new. Maybe the herb ones you made awhile back?

  2. We don’t do a New Year’s dinner.

    Love how you create new stuff. Something I hope to one day be able to do…find stuff in the kitchen and throw it together for a tasty meal.

  3. You know me and the waffles. I have been going on a dessert waffle run lately. I made Black Forest Cake and Apple Pie waffles recently. This week I am going to try my hand at Carrot Cake waffles.

    Is there nothing you can put in a waffle that won’t taste great?

  4. Seriously loving the waffle recipes!! Savory waffles can be the most satisfying meal ever. Especially if cheese is involved 😉

  5. Aaaaaand now I’m hungry. I’ve never done ham and cheese waffles, but I’ve done parm cheese with spinach and was kind of smitten. Remind me again why I don’t make savory waffles more often? Ahh yes… because I got lazy in the kitchen 🙁

  6. Savory waffles sound awesome. I say that every time someone posts a recipe for them. I definitely have to get around to actually trying them sometime!

  7. Mmmmm! I like ham too! New Years day dinner? Usually we are too lazy/tired from the night before to make anything. New Years eve we don’t have any traditional dinners either.

  8. PS, I like your new shiny background…it has been a while since I have read blogs on a computer versus my phone so I can actually see what their blogs look like, yay!

  9. I never make savory waffles or pancakes, and I need to give them a shot! We have ham on Easter (which is pretty standard, right?), and on New Year’s we ate a ton of appetizers and soups.

  10. ham and chicken, two meats that actually go pretty well with sweet! Can’t say I’m a ham fan, but this is a great idea for a waffle. I mean, I’d expect nothing less from you 😛 I’m looking forward to the Hawaiian Waffle recipe, I’m a HUGE fan of the pizza version!

  11. Ohhh yeahhh, that looks delic! Sweet + savory / salty + sweet is my favorite combo 🙂 We get a Honey Baked Ham usually once or twice a year and I love serving leftovers with applesauce!

  12. This reminds me of the ham and cheese savoury crepes you can get in France. So good! And I got a wafflemaker for Christmas, yay!! Definitely trying this 🙂

  13. Um that omelet was AMAZING! I cannot wait for the ham and pineapple combo coming! I also cannot wait to try this 😀 Because ham is one of my favorites as of like November haha
